The Jewel Tone Story

When thinking about this concept, we were inspired to mix the old with the new. The gardens and architecture of this late 1800s historical home nestled in the heart of Amherst, Massachusetts, created a simple but elegant backdrop to allow our deep beautiful jewel tones to take center stage.

Our vision for this beautiful shoot was to showcase a deep modern jewel tone palette and embrace a balance of the classic surroundings and the rich modern romance. We created a bold design with hues of pinks, purples, greens and blues, a palette that we accented with the mixture of vintage details and modern touches.

From the modern invitation suite with its geometric shapes and bold colors to the ombre guest seating we were inspired by this beautiful balance of classic and modern.

Pantone Color of the Year 2017:Greenery

With the announcement that Greenery will be the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year. we have all gone green crazy.

This "zesty yellow green" is so versatile and can be added to any color scheme a bride and groom are working with! So add that greenery to your bouquet, ceremony, tables and so much more. Best part of greenery? Helps keep the floral cost down! High style, low budget is what we live for.

We have pulled our favorite greenery inspiration to help jump start your designing process.


Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose. This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature... Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life-affirming to look forward to.

Prominent places to add color are in your linens, chargers and your wedding party's attire. Having these elements showcase this golden-orange hue will bring a richness to your big day's style.
